Sassuolo complete shock move for Sime Vrsaljko
Italian minnows Sassuolo have pulled up a major shock having wrapped up a 6 million euro transfer for Croatian defender Sime Vrsaljko. The versatile 22-year-old has decided to leave Genoa for the Serie A side.
Vrsaljko, who is considered by many pundits to be amongst the best young players in Croatia and very highly rated by many of the top teams in Europe - including Juventus and Arsenal - has signed a three year contract with Sassuolo.
The player, who is comfortable playing at full back or in midfield, has decided to leave Genoa after just one season and Sassuolo's manager Giorgio Squinzi has pulled off a massive coup having completed a deal for Vrsaljko.
